Diabetes mellitus is a chronic disease characterized by the inability to assimilate glucose, which is vital for the human body. It is it that allows all systems and internal organs to fully function.
Unfortunately, chronic pathology is an incurable ailment that can only be compensated for through adequate therapy and lifestyle correction – special nutrition (wellness diet), optimal physical activity, and constant sugar control.
In the vast majority of cases, doctors leave drugs for the treatment of diabetes, in case of emergency. Initially, many prefer to fight through medicinal plants and herbal preparations.
You need to consider what herbs are needed to lower blood sugar in type 2 diabetes? And also find out which herbal preparations are characterized by the highest efficiency and effectiveness.
Alternative treatment: general principles
Usually, medicinal plants and fees are recommended for type 2 diabetes mellitus in combination with lifestyle correction, as well as with medications. As an independent method, herbal treatment may also be prescribed.
As a rule, monotherapy with plants is permissible in the following situations: prediabetic state, early stage of pathology, mild diabetes mellitus.
It should be noted, despite the effectiveness of plants, and their fees, such treatment is by no means a substitute for drug therapy or proper nutrition.
An exceptionally complex fight against pathology helps to compensate for the disease and stabilize sugar at the required (target) level in this particular situation.
Basic safety rules for the treatment of folk remedies:
- Before using any diabetic collection, it is recommended to consult a doctor about its compatibility with medicines (if the patient is taking the medicine).
- Any collection of herbs for diabetes must be carefully studied so that in advance it is possible to exclude the development of an allergic reaction due to intolerance to the drug as a whole or its individual components.
- Buying herbs and fees is recommended only at the pharmacy. On the package should be noted that the plants have passed the radiological control, meet all sanitary standards.
If the patient takes medications at the same time and drinks the herbal collection for type 2 diabetes, then he should not independently reduce the dosage of medications. This can be done by a doctor.
This rule also applies to the first type of disease, the dose of insulin should not be reduced arbitrarily.
How do medicinal herbs help?
Healing plants have been used for more than one hundred years to treat many diseases, including diabetes. Fees for diabetes do not help to completely get rid of the disease, but they can be an excellent support for the human body, reduce sugar, improve overall well-being.
Speaking conditionally, then for people suffering from diabetes, all medicinal plants can be divided into two categories: herbs that lower sugar and “other” plants.
The first category of plants helps to reduce the concentration of glucose in the body, since they contain insulin-like components. The second category consists of plants that provide for the regulation of metabolic processes in the body, help restore the functionality of the liver, kidneys and other internal organs.
Generally speaking, treatment with folk remedies is as follows:
- In case of diabetes of the second type, the patient takes medication fees, plus goes in for sports, eats right. If the form of diabetes is severe, it may be taking medication.
- In the first type of disease, the patient drinks decoctions based on the necessary plants, injects insulin, complies with other recommendations of the doctor.
Despite the fact that herbs can be taken to maintain the body against the background of the first type of diabetes, medical practice shows that they are really “of little use.” Since no matter how “magical” the plant is, there is no escape from insulin, and its dosage can be reduced, it is unlikely to succeed.
However, in the first type of diabetes, plants belonging to the “other” category can be used.
As mentioned above, herbs must be purchased at a pharmacy. But you can assemble it yourself, provided that the collection is carried out in an environmentally friendly place, and the person has the appropriate knowledge.
